Bill Gates is a man who needs little introduction. And his love for investing in vegan food and tech is almost as well-known as he is these days.

 

While not vegan personally, Gates has on multiple occasions spoken to the importance of reducing meat consumption and plant-based protein – including in a 2013 interview with “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and “How to Change Your Mind” author Michael Pollan. The tech mogul has done his fair share in making the world a more compassionate place.

 

The founder of the global Microsoft empire, the tech entrepreneur and his wife, Melinda, launched the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000. Reported to be the largest private foundation in the world, the charity has supported efforts to increase access to nutrition, education, healthcare, and technology across the globe.

 

In their most recent annual letter, the Gates’ highlighted some stories from 2018 that took them by surprise. On the realization that the world’s building stock is set to double by 2060, the equivalent of building a new NYC every both, Gates wrote, “I wish more people fully understood what it will take to stop climate change.”

 

In a video, he explained that it’s not as easy as just switching to clean energy – all sectors, including agriculture, need to evolve. “Part of the solution is to invest in innovation in all five sectors so we can do these things without destroying the climate. We need breakthrough inventions in each of the grand challenges,” he said.
